The CAMLTC includes the standards and intent statements for 2000-2001 and provides implementation examples. It also includes new features, such as a detailed account of the joint Commission's Sentinel Event policy; a chapter explaining the role of performance measurement in the accreditation process; revised decision rules; and a comparison of last year's scoring caps to the 2000-2001 scoring caps. Accreditation policies and procedures, aggregation rules and scoring questions are also addressed.
